MS Amadeus IMPERIAL

With a Fijian crew of 30, you know you will be well looked after with true Fijian hospitality.

The M.V. Fiji Princess has 34 air-conditioned cabins, accommodating up to 68 passengers. Each cabin features a private en-suite bathroom, storage space, TV with movies, vanity table, hair dryer, towels and Pure Fiji bathroom amenities.

Cabins serviced daily. All cabins are above the waterline and feature windows with ocean views. Double & Twin options are available.
